graduate from our university. why should we educate some of the best minds on earth and say sorry, no room in the u.s. economy for you? it makes no sense. they go away and compete against us rather than innovating and creating jobs here. then i took a closer look at what the republicans are actually proposing. they haven't turned the corner at all. in fact, they haven't even stepped out of their houses. they certainly didn't learn anything from the last election. the stem visa bill on the house floor this week was actually voted down in september. it was introduced with a few changes and no consultation with democrats. i want to find a bipartisan solution on immigration. i'm committed to it. i know it won't be easy. they say a journey of 1,000 miles begins with just one step. the problem is my colleagues on the other side of the aisle want to take one step and have the democrats travel the other 999.9 miles. certainly this bill isn't even a step it's a shell game. it's the same problem that the stem bill in september had. it holds visa from a legal immigration program that works over to a
with one purpose in mind -- to educate citizens, community groups and policymakers about the positive impacts of choosing locally owned businesses. it is a network of locally owned independent businesses, community organizations and citizens that's grown to more than 3,000 local business owners. studies have shown that shifting just a small percentage of our shopping dollars to locally owned businesses could keep millions in our communities. this is something to think about as the holiday season approaches. instead of going to a chain, why not branch out and get your coffee at safari cafe on south port or get a hotdog at jean and june's and buy a few holiday gift at a local shop as well? local businesses help thriving communities. i'm glad to have local first chicago fighting for ours. thank you. i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman yields back. for what purpose does the gentleman from michigan seek recognition? >> i ask unanimous consent to address the house for one minute and to revise and extend my remarks. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman from michigan is rec
the national education system. this is the only way you can invest in syrians. this is why syria has to have a long-term plan to recover. syria needs at least $60 billion to recover. with all the destruction that we have in all of our cities. i will end here and i will be more than happy to answer questions that you have a. >> thank you very much. [applause] >> the first thing i would like to ask you, trying to look more into the new syrian position, my concern is that the rights of the minorities and in the new syrian opposition has not been really addressed as the same issues were also presented. how do you address this issue? your last. trying to think about what is going to happen next, that is an issue that the new syrian position should address. >> the rights of the minorities is an important issue. sometimes we emphasize the issues from their own perspective. when the syrian uprising started, christians, alliance, and christians being killed by participating. he decided to go back to his hometown. he is from damascus, but he is playing a role by training journalist to do the video to
to utilize their talents and the education they have received is to give them a legal status. >> suarez: the bill would to grant legal residence for those who pursue higher education or serve the u.s. military. unlike the "dream act," which failed to get through congress, the "achieve act" would not provide a path to full citizenship. and that is a sticking point for most democrats. new jersey senator bob menendez: >> they call it the achieve act. the problem with the achieve act is that it does not achieve the dream of the young people who aspire to fully participate in american life. who only know one flag that they pledge allegiance to, that is the flag of the united states. >> suarez: still, senator kyl said tuesday, the republican bill can be a first step toward broader measures. >> it will begin the discussion. and it may be that it will lead to a series of smaller steps next year rather than comprehensive reform. on the other hand i suspect that the president and others may want to put comprehensive reform on the table. but either way i think focusing on certain specific issues l
in the "washington post" on the same subject. secondly, in the area of education i wouldn't be here today without good education and opportunity created by the national defense education act. i want to give belated thanks to the soviets for launching sputnik and scaring the hell out of the u.s. economist because as result of it they created a loan program that got me into college law school. we can't give up on that. this kid from east st. louis illinois and for many others, these loans make a big difference whether it's pell grants or loans, but let's look at this honestly. 25% of the federal aid to education goes to for-profit schools. they have 12% of the students, 25% of the federal aid to education, and more than double the student loan default rate of any other class higher education. there are ways to cut back in spending in education particularly as is wasted on some of the schools that will give us opportunities for resources for real education. which can be part of our future. now let me come to the most painful topic of all, entitlements. social security was included in the simpson-bow
education, keep in mind, not everybody wants to stay here as attractive as our country is, some people want to learn here and go back to other countries thansd fine as well. but many will want to stay here. in losing some of those visas, again, we are only increasing the immigration problem, the legal immigration problem and moving in the opposite direction addressing immigration in this country. there is little to be proud of with regard to the current state of affairs in immigration. it's very different than when my grandparents came here and came to ellis island and albeit with a misspelled name were able to go to work the next day. it's becoming harder and harter. the absence of a legal way of immigrants that's in touch with our labor market in this country, the lack of having an ore rahtive immigration system, has led to 10 million people being here illegally, working here illegally, in many cases integrated into our communities, many of them have american children. yet without any way, currently, of getting right with the law. what we need to do in immigration reform is require that p
are doing that with education, by the way, any profit sector in education, is a competitor to what the government does. is there any truth to that, do you think? >> i mean the decision to give a charitable gift is driven by helping the community directly. when it goes through government, i mean we see every day the inefficiency of that, that the charity's mission starts to drift towards what the government wants rather than what the community wants, rather than the mission of the organization. david: private charity is more efficient? stuart: more basic point, when the government does so called charitable work, it is essentially distributing money, it is buying votes. liz: that's right. stuart: when a private charity does good, there's no vote buying. it is an efficient delivery of service. am i crazy? >> added to that is that many of these charities do rely upon local state and federal money for some of their programs. they are already getting a major cut in all of that to begin with. then you add to that this? liz: yeah. it's upside down and backwards the way the white house and
transformed. >> you say government needs to educate people. >> i said education. treat these foods as addictive substances. >> people need to understand that certain people are very, very susceptible to this. here's what you need to do. if you take -- let's take that bottle of fasty stuff there. say we take that right there. all right. if you say that i can't have a 16 ounce what am i going to do if i have an issue like food addiction. i am going to score it some other way. you can charge me. you can maybe run around with 8 ountss inste ountss -- ounces instead of 16 ounces but somehow i am going to score this thing and you can't do a thing about that. >> you are against mayor bloomberg's ridiculous soda size thing. you do say make free programs available to get people to detox and get off these foods. >> i didn't say it was government. i said can we have programs. you know what the free programs are? they are already in existence. they are done by private organizations. we have over eaters anonymous. >> not government? >> no. >> they are all free. we agree about that. i told you i
and the education and health care but once again this is the number one driver of economic growth. liz: of all the funding might get cut if we go over the fiscal cliff, doesn't that create a massive stumbling block for you guys, what you're trying to do? >> there are two areas you are raising. it will be shifting asia. china is not cutting their commitments, they are increasing their commitments and india is dramatically increasing, singapore is dramatically -- the uk is investing more. we are talking about where is the center of innovation, where will the company's -- it is not that it is not going to exist but it will shift -- liz: we will lose our leadership. >> we will lose our leadership of we don't recommit. liz: are you worried we are not turning out enough doctors and scientists in this nation? >> we are probably not turning out enough research scientists with clinical expertise and i am afraid some young people who are interested in this, do i want to take on all those risks, people struggling to keep laboratories going and maybe decide to do something else. the most important resourc
't been actually in-elected office for a while, but he's making education reform and viewers know what i think about that. he certainly is an interesting character. i keep thinking, won't the bush last name be a liability in this case? >> maybe. but you know what, i have to say, i also -- i don't agree with all of his policies, but i have to give him a lot of credit. for two years, he's been telling the republican party they have to be more moderate and tone it down in immigration and recalibrate and nobody listened to him. he was like the lone wolf out there. i also give him credit -- i don't agree with the policies, but he's been talking a lot about education in his reforms. he likes one of his pet topics is income and equality. you don't hear republicans talking about that. those are the things that will resonate with independent voters. actually, i did see a poll recently in miami herald that showed that jeb bush was more popular among hispanics. jeb bush was more popular than rubio. it goes to your point. if you have a great message and someone who connects with the electorate. it d
to the defense settlement and the objective the nhs budget and the object to the education budget, even though nhs schools are going up, and what exactly would they do? the problem is as was evident from the shadow chancellor's response, they didn't have anything to say on these matters but if they had a credible deficit plan then we would listen to the questions they ask us about the priorities of those plans. >> john stephenson. >> this cools and colleges of 270 million are extremely welcome. schools and colleges such as those in my constituency plans on the runway ready to take off, just in a little additional financial support. will the chancellor help those colleges and schools? >> i'm very happy to look personally at the case my honorable friend makes for his local education facility. these are of course other government departments but we have provided the money for education, for new free schools and academies. and i'm sure that carlyle should be looked at. >> steve reed. >> chancellor aware because of his continuing inadequate level of funding to school building which today's statemen
owned by the career education corporation, one of the major league for-profit colleges. his parents didn't have the means to pay for his education but helped him out by cosigning the loans. now the student and the parents have $103,000 in student loan debt. one of the loans has a 13% interest rate, and the balance continues to rise. this young man, young man would like to finish his degree but he can't afford to. he can't borrow any more money. he is too deeply in debt. how about that for a dilemma? $103,000 in debt, no degree. he can't borrow the money to get a degree. many of these students find out these for-profit courses they took are worthless. they don't transfer anywhere. the diplomacy themselves turn out to be worthless and many employers just laugh at them. you would never know that from the advertising these for-profit schools engage in. i had a group of students in my office this morning. they were from archbishop carroll high school, not too far from the capitol here. they are students who know a little bit about being wooed and enticed by colleges, universities. we talked a
to cramer. i'm just trying to save you money. my job is not just to entertain you but educate and teach. call me at 1-800-743-cnbc. dow gaining four points, nasdaq slipped .06%. we can talk all we want about what's going to happen next week in terms of earnings, stocks. and we will. but this time our game plan begins oddly and strangely on a sunday. sunday when the treasury secretary of the united states of america will be on "meet the press addressing the fiscal cliff situation. as a student of secretary geithner who has studied every move i believe he will report we are going to avoid falling over the fiscal cliff and get deal. in part because the two sides aren't that far apart. they sound like they are but they may not be. both sides recognize that we will be in a recession very quickly, maybe even as soon as the second quarter. if they don't compromise. so listen to me. the tax hikes are so severe. [ audience boos ] >> the spending cuts, particularly the cuts to the military, are so draconian even some republicans who think a compromise is a total betrayal, they fear the economic c
and you have a context about these buildings and my colleagues gave you a thorough education about what this is about, so that's the step we're at today with the 20th street historic buildings. just letting you know this is the area in red at pier 70 and south of mission bay. on november 9 you endorsed a term sheet with horton development. next today i am here to report on informational item on the fiscal feasibility analysis. later this month we will be in front of the board of supervisors and the findings on the term sheet and environmental review and that's really the question. is it the right thing to do? are there enough benefits? as you know this was to save the six buildings. this will create about 500 jobs. most of the benefits come from the business activity associated with those jobs and businesses, so rather than going through much detail i thought i would explain and did this to look at this complex next to it. this is about 250,000 -- 300,000 square feet of space and similar uses. we were able to use real data and worked in the idea of being fairly conservative a
. welcome to "mad money" welcome to cramerica. my job is not just to educate you but to entertain me. call me at cnbc. believe it or not, i actually used to be a mountain climber. drove my mother crazy but i loved it. always had the best gear. climb up from whatever abyss faced me. which is why i'm donning the finest mountain-climbing attire i can get my hand on because i now believe that we may very well go over the fiscal cliff come january and i want to be ready to climb back out with the right stock after it happens. you can't come from a given day like today, dow 107 points, hey, happy days are here again, right? this is a day where my equipment felt a little -- felt a little superfluous because we had all sorts of happy talk for a bunch of people in washington about how compromise was within reach. however, i think it's been increasingly apparent that we actually may not get a deal in time for the january deadline. something warren buffett pointed out. who am i to disagree. you don't need to change your philosophy just because we cliffed you. long term it might not matter. not all of
're talking about education or job training or investment in our infrastructure or providing the services for our veterans when they come home or those kinds of things that we can't just continue to talk about cutting government. we have to have a country that actually is strong in the underpinnings and that is a balanced approach that i think we need to be taking. >> before we go, i swrus want to turn to one other piece of senate business, this oddity of susan rice. it's just a simple question about john mccain and lindsey graham and john mccain and lindsey graham, do you think they are crazy and you can answer yes or maybe. >> what i believe is that susan rice is an incredible person with a great deal of intelligence and integrity and ought to be taken for her word. i think it's really unfortunate for her. >> i don't think senators are crazy in my experience, so i've been theorizing this is about opening up the secretary of state job for john kerry, so if they then reopen a massachusetts senate seat r for scott brown. is that your sense of the game that's being played? >> i have no idea
. that is also true for other highly educated federal workers. i wanted to make that point. the other thing is that one point that is not obvious all the time is that when a congressman or congresswoman come in -- comes in and leaves 15 or 20 years later being a much wealthier individual. can you address that, please? thanks very much for c-span. guest: i would echo that for c- span. that is tough. my role and out of act as a longtime observer of congress for the last 30 years. there's been a number of pieces of research that have been done in the last few years. most prominently was a cassette in 60 minutes" piece about members of congress stock trading -- was "60 minutes" piece about members of congress stock trading. i have to tell you -- i do not see it. members of congress by and large are hard-working people spending their time on what their constituents need and want. if they are trying to get rich in congress, they get caught and go to jail. we have high-profile examples of that happening in the last few years. some of the journalism, some of the stuff that has come out in the last
to determine the best education treatment and care for their disabled children. proponents of the treaty will dismiss those concerns as myth. i simply cannot support a treaty that threatens the right of parents to raise their children with the constantly made for a state interference. if this vote in this treaty were in fact about protecting the rights of americans with disabilities, i might have a different position in the debate would take on a very different tone. this treaty is ultimately not about protecting rights of americans with disabilities because this treaty simply has no enforcement mechanism to protect those rights, the rights of disabled americans including veterans who may travel the country such as china or russia or mali or any other country that may choose to adopt this treaty. if the senate desires to protect rights of disabled americans who travel abroad, the senate would do better to encourage other nations to model their own reforms, their own internal legal structures after the americans with disabilities act, which 20 years after its passage still send a message
that work. but ultimately it is about providing greater opportunity, greater education, greater economics, the jobs and growth to a population so that they can have a real stake in their society and can be partners with their government. i assume part of your question is aimed at the whole legalization issue. i think this is an ongoing debate. we are formulating our own response to the votes of two of our states, as you know, and what that means for the federal system, the federal laws and law enforcement. i respect those in the region who believe strongly that that would end the problem. i am not convinced of that, just speaking personally. i think, when you have a ruthless and vicious people who have made money one way and are somehow blocked, they will figure out another way. they will do kidnapping. they will do extortion. there will suborn officials and takeover swaths of territory that they will govern and terrorize people in. so i don't think that is the answer. whether there is some movement that can be discussed, i think it will have to be a topic for the future for us. >> thank
would see places go down. we would see jobs come, we would see our kids educated better because we would have an invested understanding of it's about us being better, not about who's the weakest link, not about who's poor or rich, but about just making a -- that's it. host: this is bill in camden, illinois. independent line. caller: good morning, c-span. you know, it's really disastrous the way the government is handling. they want the taxes but they don't want to cut anything. and you can look at illinois and california as a prime example of what happens when you increase taxes and you don't cut spending. they should have a program where everybody under 50 on an entitlement program is trained for a certain occupation and once they're trained, if they're offered a job in that occupation and they turn it down, they lose their entight ltment, as long as it's not a real bad physical condition. the other thing is, we're creating generations of dependent people because we make it more enticing for them to stay on entitlements than to go out and find work. i mean, you can't make enough on mini
, fundamental rights of parents to direct the education and the upbringing of their child with h special needs. this could result in forcibly transferring a disabled child from the home to government-run schools if these unelected, unaccountable bureaucrats deem it necessary, even if the senate puts reservations into this treaty." i ask that this letter -- i have two letters i'd ask that would be made a part of the record at this point. that is one of the other once coming from the concerned women of america. i ask that they be made a part of the record at this point in the journal. ferraro ithe presiding officer:s there objection? without objection. mr. inhofe: i have been an advocate of human rights around the world, ensuring that the world is accessible to those with disabilities. however, i do not support the cumbersome regulations and potentially overzealous international organizations with anti-american biases that inch - that infringe upon american society. you know, if we had not passed what i consider to be the gold standard of the disabled world when we passed -- and i do remember at
, gosh. i would lean towards jeb at this piont because he has really been pushing education. right now, he's got me. host: stephen, who did you vote for in 2008? in 2012.ean caller: i voted for president obama. i really liked mitt romney. why do i have to pay less taxes than my friend from massachusetts? that really bugged me. host: that is stephen from connecticut. tyrone is a republican from the bronx. caller: i think hillary clinton would be an excellent candidate in 2016. i think she handled the middle eastern issue to the best of her ability. also, as far as the gop is concerned, i think she has made strides toward eliminating the tax spending through various commitments with private entities and organizations that are coming out of the woodwork. i was watching earlier today and what they were requesting from the white house was let's fix this problem by incorporating a small businesses and less government intervention to curb the deficit. it has been astronomical. then i heard barack obama say the way we are going to do it is by making more cuts in various ways. he was saying by
the level of services that allow their children to be educate and their mother and father remain in a nursing home and receive benefits and so see bridges and roads constructed and replaced. >> i want to talk about the history of how this argument has been made. it has been made in the past. we have amazing fdr sound making this case. bruce, hang out with us, if you would. back after this break. uh... um... hm... umm... uh... oh ! the windows phone 8x by htc on verizon. it features easy to navigate live tiles that are simple to customize. just pin what matters most right to your homescreen. exclusively with data sense-- a feature that makes the most of you plan. only on verizon. >> announcer: 'tis the season of more-- more shopping, more dining out... and along with it, more identity theft. by the time this holiday season is over, an estimated 1.2 million identities may be stolen. every time you pull out your wallet, shop online or hit the road, you give thieves a chance to ruin your holiday. by the time you're done watching this, as many as 40 more identities may be stolen. you
for right now, and when to give our children the kind of education they need. i went to lead the world in research, technology, and clean energy. i want to put people back to work rebuilding our roads, bridges, and their schools. i want to do this by bringing down our deficits in a balanced and responsible way. [applause] >> on this last point, you probably heard a lot of talk in washington and in the media about the deadlines that we're facing on jobs and taxes and investments. this is not some run-of-the-mill debate. this isn't about which political party can come out on top in negotiations. we've got important decisions to make that are going to have a real impact on businesses and families all across the country. our ultimate goal, our long-term goal is to get our long-term deficit under control in a way that is balanced and is fair. that would be good for businesses, for our economy, for future generations. and i believe both parties can and will work together in the coming weeks to get that done. we know how that gets done. we're going to have to raise a little more revenue. we'v
centers of power somehow think that only the truly informed, the truly educated, can somehow know what direction this country should take. i often thought the reason why warren thought that is because in combat, like john and others and bob dole and danny, they served next to ordinary people with a grade educations and high school educations -- 8th grade dictations and high school educations. for me, all of the things that have been said about warren i could repeat and it would emphasize what you already know about them. the reason why i martin so much is the reason i just stated -- the reason why i admired him so much is the reason i just stated. i never met a man in all of the time i have served with the single exception of dan n.o.i. -- daniel who had the grit -- in ordinary americans. the thing i like best from warren is when he said, just tell them the truth. that is what he always did. he told the truth. we all have a slightly different perspective, his honesty could be searing, but his compassion was always profound. that is a rare combination for any man or woman. he believed t
out by the steam fitters. this is put out by the teachers unions. these are the people educating our children. these are the people in whose hands we place the future of our country. they are passion on things that aren't just dishonest. that people get rich from tax cuts. but beneath them, they are side. this is bad economics. it's horrifying that any teacher in a classroom today believes any of this. >> trickle down does not work. trickle up works. the president is putting money in the pockets of those who will spend it. that why he has done small business tax cuts. trickle down we learned since the 80s with reagan, it does not work. martha: when i was a kid i learned the preamble to the constitution by watching "schoolhouse rock." this is -- it is so blatantly -- the phrase in here where he says the rich man shrugs his shoulders and says why should i care about other non-rich people. do you really think it's worth perpetuating the notion that people who are successful don't care about people who aren't successful? >> this is a cartoon that uses hyperbole to make a point and it's a
people can read it. we have those two things, the chances of being completely jammed is a greatly educed, not down to zero, but let's get c-span cameras there. lou: i think your condition would be more difficult to negotiate and resolving those tax hikes and budget cuts themselves. it sounds to me like e republicans are in a very difficult positio and a lack of strategy that will produce a resolution and that we are where we began, waiting leaders from 1600 pennsylvania. >> we are not getting leaders from the white house, not even getting participation, but that happened last time when we did this with the debt ceiling increase, the same thing happened then. lou: all right. as always, good to talk with you. thank you for being here. a lot more on these negotiations later in the broadcast. we'll be talking with the "a-team" coming right up. ♪ the president and congress remain f apart on how to resolve the fiscal cliff. we are looking at what may be a federal government disaster. guess what, the governments are in no better shape. that's tonight's "chalk talk." triple digit gains on wall
